Coldplay have been quietly teasing their latest (and possibly final) album, A Head Full of Dreams, for almost a year, and now we have some details: The album will arrive on December 4, and it’ll feature Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo, Merry Clayton, and, most notably, Chris Martin’s BFF, Beyoncé. Yep, after years of friendship (mostly thanks to Martin’s ex, Gwyneth Paltrow), she’s finally agreed to grace one of his albums with her presence. Sadly, she won’t be doing a cover of “Yellow,” but something entirely new, like that time Coldplay teamed up with Rihanna for “Princess of China.” They’re saving the Bey collaboration for later and instead have released the groovy new tune “Adventure of a Lifetime,” which they debuted live at Global Citizens Festival back in September.
